Beginning on May 30th, Suede will be releasing re-mastered, expanded versions of their five studio albums through Demon Records. The albums, which will be released in weekly intervals, will contain previously unreleased material and rare, unseen video footage – including three hours of rarely seen TV programmes and films, and nearly two hours of brand new interviews with the band. Each release will also contain a special 32-page booklet, including a note specially written by Brett Anderson.
“This is the definitive collection of pretty much everything we released in 14 years together – and some stuff which we didn’t,” says Anderson of the release. “It’s all re-mastered and includes unreleased, never-before-heard oddities and gems which even I’d forgotten about. It’s the complete audio history of a band and, like any band of interest, it’s flawed, strange and sometimes beautiful”.
We’ve got a couple of exclusive clips from the ‘Dog Man Star’ re-release (due out June 6th). In addition to featuring non-album bonus tracks and demos, it contains these two exciting, never-before-seen gems:
